MPD confirmation on last night's double shooting in #Dinkytown that resulted in one dead and another hospitalized w/non-life threatening injuries. Three guns were recovered at the scene.
Police not looking for more suspects.
No danger to the public.

ME will ID the fatality.
As a refresher, this is at least the third double shooting in #Dinkytown since the first of the year.

The #UMN has confirmed that neither of the victims were students.
MPD has updated that during the identification process, it was learned that the deceased person in this incident is a juvenile male and not an adult male as originally believed.

Day 3 #ChauvinTrial thread.
Minneapolis fire fighter Genevieve Hansen, who was an off-duty bystander at the GF incident, retakes the stand this morning. She was reprimanded by Judge Cahill yesterday for being argumentative with defense & the court.

Witness Christopher Martin, 19, takes the stand. He was living above Cup Foods & was working as cashier at the store on May 25 at the time of the #GeorgeFloyd incident.

Martin said GF came in to buy cigarettes. Martin conversed with GF and said it took GF a little long to reply and he appeared high.

Day 2 #ChauvinTrial thread.
A motion was heard this a.m. on protecting the ID of witnesses who were minors at the time (there are 4).
Judge ruled minors can use first name or initials, but their names are public on witness list. And one has already sought publicity thru media.
Again, here is our compilation of the police dispatch audio from the time of the #GeorgeFloyd incident. The dispatch audio has been referenced several times in the #ChauvinTrial already.

During the #GeorgeFloyd riots, @MplsWard4 Phillipe Cunningham posted that KKK members in robes were walking around north Mpls(1) & implied they were responsible for burning buildings & destruction. Today, he doubled down on that assertion in a new doc(2).… ImageImage
2 days after Cunningham's assertion, Dept of Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington was directly asked about it at a presser, & he said there was zero evidence and no verifiable reports of KKK being in Minnesota.

At this point, Cunningham is irresponsibly fomenting division. Image
If you care to contact Phillipe Cunningham about his attempt to irresponsibly foment division and his continued effort to continue to spread officially debunked information to enflame discontent:
